Gun Control Project: Could Use Your Help!Submitted by Denise B on Tue, 05/14/2013 - 18:16
Hi everyone. My step-daughter has just been assigned a project in her U.S. History Class which requires that each student do a comprehensive report on Gun Control/Gun Ownership. Each student is required to take a stand either for or against Gun Control and Gun Ownership in general and thoroughly explain the reasons for their stance.
Being my step-daughter, Ashley's stance is, of course, going to be very strongly pro Gun Ownership and very much against gun control. In addition to the written portion, she is also required to provide visuals, including things like maps, graphs, charts, tables, videos, photos and even cartoons. This is where you guys come in.
This is such a great opportunity to present an entire classroom with the real facts concerning the history of the Second Amendment, as well as concrete evidence that gun control simply does not work to prevent crime, and in fact often results in increased crime rates. Knowing how well versed many of you are in this area, I would appreciate any input you have on this topic, including any links you may have to stats, videos, charts etc. etc. on this topic.
I really want to help her hit this one out of the park and would welcome any input anyone can provide. Thanks!
